A Blade by Code-Shark A Blade by Code-Shark
The store front was an oven, even the shade from the rows of haphazard shelving did little to quell the heats onslaught. Licking her dry lips, Amenii Oakwoods pushed past several blades that looked like they had been forged out of clay, and chipped enough to give them an edge.

Those will not do, she needed metal, something hard, something that would fit her stature. That had been a problem, even the daggers here felt large and clumsy in her small hands. Reaching out she pulled a blackened blade from the shelf.

Amenii turned the blade over in her hand, the metal was something she had not seen before, and the make was of a craft was just as alien. Yet, with its worn hilt, and razors edge there was something elegant about the blade. Turning it over in her hand she ran a finger down the side of the shaft.

‘Careful!’ Nera exclaimed, her hand snapped out to grasp Amenii’s wrist.

Resisting the urge to snap her hand back, Amenii let it slide. ‘I just wanted to feel the design.’

‘And that’s a great way to lose your fingers.’ Nera retorted, letting go of the bunny’s hand, before returning her attention to the shelves before them. The shop was cramped with odds and ends, weapons of any kind imaginable. Gauntlets, grieves, swords, axes, and several constructs Amenii could only guess at.

‘How am I even supposed to know what to look for?’  She spoke half to herself.

‘A weapon.’ Nera growled back. ‘Preferably something you can wield without killing yourself with.’

‘Are you looking for something in particular?’ a man’s voice came out of the shadows.

Amenii jumped at the voice, and Nera dropped a spherical item with colorful paint she had been examining.

Stepping out from between dusty shelves he emerged smiling. ‘Please, be welcome at my humble shop. Here we have many good things for those with the coin to pay for them.’ His eyes ran over Nera and her newly purchased garb. ‘You do have coin, yes?’

Nera smiled, extracted a pouch from her belt and emptied the contents onto the nearest flat surface.

The man’s eyes grew wide. ‘I see you are a specialty customer, come, come, the Great Mirzak has many glorious thing to show you.’

...

C.S. Notes: I wanted to finish this story, but I am exhausted and in need of sleep. What you need to know: this blade was created by none other than: :iconsarspax: Who did an amazing job, so I wished to create an good backstory for such a weapon.

Thank you, I would have liked to dedicate the time to finishing it in one night, but sleep called.

The second piece I plan on working in color, and this will let me open up the full story behind the blades, and Nera's whip.

A pair, ah yes I do recall. One for each hip. Now all Amenii has to do is learn how to dual wield. ^.^

Question: does it take place in the Clone Wars Era or The Galactic Empire era?

Code-Shark Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2017  Student Traditional Artist
Clone wars universe, as there is no way to 'fix' the timeline between the classic and new star wars movies. And any attempt to do so would result in an unholy abomination! :@

She's not that skilled in the force sadly.
